The Enugu Catholic Diocese has denied reports that controversial priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka was removed from his position as the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN).
VANTAGE NEWS reports that some members of the ministry protested against the rumoured removal of Mbaka who was said to have been replaced by Reverend Father Anthony Amadi.
However, in a statement issued on Monday by the Director of Communications, Enugu Diocese, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi, the church clarified that Mbaka would return to continue his duties, as he is only on temporary leave.
The statement reads, “With the approval of his Bishop, on Sunday, 2 October 2022, Fr. Mbaka introduced Fr. Anthony Amadi to the worshippers.
“Unfortunately, some people were still not pleased, and would prefer that Fr. Mbaka remains.
“What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic, should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka, to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God specially, come out stronger and better in recognizing His will for him and gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.
“The Church loves Fr. Mbaka and cherishes him as an illustrious son.
”May our Mother Mary, the Queen of all Apostles, intercede for him. Amen”.
